finds abroad

Often times with the holidays, comes travel. Lots of you may have trips coming up, or have friends and family members jetting away. If you are heading out of town, there is nothing like bringing back hard to find, sought after gifts from your destination. I recently went to Anacapri in Italy (and clearly loved it). Before I went, I was told about their specialty from many people - handmade leather sandals. I came across Antonio Viva. He is an expert in his craft and I loved getting a few pairs for myself, but also bring back some for friends and family. They made such a special and rememberable gift. Do some advanced research, and be on the lookout while you relax for perfect local finds. 

If you know that someone will be traveling, give items that will get them excited for the trip. Guide books are always great options. I also love Maptote, a company dedicated to creating a line of products decorated with maps of locales both domestic and exotic. A Napa wine bag, like the one below, is perfect for a jaunt to the vineyards.
